Building Laws – Questions

Can anyone please tell me what the current building law says regarding the minimum distance of a new construction to an adjacent property line and closest building?

If it makes a difference this relates to the province of Granada, or is it controlled generally by the Junta de Andalucia?

Any0ne have (legal) experience of a new build that’s deemed too close?

Karaoke Event
Hello, a lot of times you can find adverts about cycling groups, petanque groups, etc.
Now I propose, to create a group to enjoy karaoke ( it is free).
We could meet 2 or 3 days a month in a bar to sing together and
we even could organise a barbecue day, every 3 months.
On the BBQ day, we could do other activities, like playing cards, dice,
petanque, darts, ping pong … we could choose some games and make little

If we decide to do the BBQ day I compromise to organise it myself
If you like the idea, please contact me on:
Tel. (0034) 658 .569 .700
